I live in Idaho, so if I gave up hope on Idaho Democrats, I'd be all dressed up during election season with nowhere to go. I'm biased. I don't think I can chalk the same bias up to the DCCC, though. From the Ridenbaugh Press:
The national Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which at the
moment is well-enough funded to go after Republicans incumbents more
than it has to play defense (it has $30.6 million to $2.3 million for
its Republican counterpart), today released its list of 40 Republican-held target seats. Two of them are Northwestern: Washington’s 8th, held by Dave Reichert, and Idaho’s 1st, held by Bill Sali.
As I've mentioned before, ID-01's looking at a three-way Democratic primary this year. My opinions on that contest later.
